Coated Moto Skinny Pants…day to night.

 I knew I was going out later this night, but really didn’t want to have to think about a separate outfit.  So…I picked something that I could dress down for preschool drop off, work, pick up, and then play…then easily transition into a Mama’s night out!

Coated denim is one of my favorite things to wear in the fall/winter.  Super fun and easy to clean-WIN!  And it can easily be dressed up or down.  Denim jackets are my favorite “make just about anything easy and casual” item of clothing.

My favorite leather jacket… in GREEN!

 I have this exact jacket it a bright orange (worn last here), and I love it!  I get compliments every time I wear it, and even let a senior wear it for her senior portraits.  When I saw it on eBay a while back in green (my favorite color), I sooooo wanted it!!  I let it go (did I really need another leather jacket???!)  Then, I saw it again a few weeks ago at a screaming deal (aka FATE haha), so I snatched it up!  I have a few Doma Leather jackets.  Obviously, the quality is amazing, but they also all have such unique details to them.  I love that!!Blog Green Doma Leather Jacket Blankn NYC Pants Suede Booties-1 Blog Green Doma Leather Jacket Blankn NYC Pants Suede Booties-2Scored these suede booties at a thrift store last week for $7!!  They are super comfy too!

My favorite leather jacket + Vans…sure they go together :)

 I’m a big believer in putting things together that you like, and that look good on you.  Rules schmules (to some extent!).  Then…fingers crossed they work.  And if they don’t, oh well.  At least you like what you’re wearing If you feel good, chances are you look good too 🙂  I can’t tell you how many times I tried to make something work that I liked on someone else, but felt so uncomfortable all day that I hated it/couldn’t wait to fling it off when I got home.

Now, there’s really nothing odd about this outfit.  At least I don’t think there is?  haha.  The Pink Polka Dot Vans are a little playful (totally remind me of my childhood), and the jacket is a little edgy.  Not exactly the “perfect fit”, but I was comfortable, so it was a win 🙂Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-1 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-2 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-3 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-4LOVE the details in this Doma jacket.  I bought it when I worked at Sway and Cake for a year on the weekends (9 years ago??).  Yeah, THAT was dangerous… Anyway, it still totally current and still looks great!

Fun with the fog…or really, just having fun :)

I have been LOVING all the fog we’ve been having here in Seattle.  It’s SO much fun to photograph!  Clients always get excited by sun (so limiting for pictures!), but fog…love it!  Some like sun flare…I like fog flare 😉

You’d think I’d want to wear vibrant colors in the haze, but no….black and gray.  My usual.Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-1 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-2 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-3Love that the picture on the left shows the fog rolling in, and the one on the right…it’s passed.  In a matter of minutes! Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-4Someone found her love of the self timer again.  I let her push the button and she thought it was hilarious.  Everyone (even strangers!) always says how much Maya looks like my husband, but for anyone that knows me…that is SO MY LAUGH!  Love that I captured it.  With a self timer no less 😉 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-5 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-6 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-7 Blog Doma DL1961 JCrew Converse-8Um, see what I mean about the fog??!

Wide leg jeans + HEELS + Leather Jacket…must be date night! :)

We were having dinner with my parents over the weekend and they offered to babysit Maya Tuesday so we could go on a date night.  I think it took us all of about .000003 seconds to say “YES!”

They were also nice enough to give me a break from the self timer and took some pics before we left 🙂Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-5 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-8 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-7 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-6The sales places are having are killing me!  haha.  I scooped this top up when Shopbop announced a 25% off friends and family discount on Facebook.  It was already marked down 70% off, so I scored!Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-1 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-2I had been eyeing this little lariat necklace from Gorjana-Griffin for a while.  When they announced having an extra 40% off their sale items, and I couldn’t resist (it’s 50% now!!)  I may have gotten the earrings and a few other things too! 😉  I love how classic and timeless all their pieces are.  I’m still mourning the bee pendant I lost from them… 😦Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-3 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-4 “Wait, no self timer??” haha Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-9 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-10 Blog DL1961 Enza Costa Doma GorjanaGriffin-11On me…

This weather feeds my outfit indecision…

I’m not saying I’m complaining about the weather lately.  That would be stupid.  It’s not raining!!  However, the freezing cold mornings, followed by total sunshine, then rapidly dropping temps again makes it hard to dress accordingly.  So…sometimes there’s a midday outfit change!

Started off wearing this…

(Don’t mind the silly grin.  This was another self timer day, and Maya was singing to a frog sculpture haha.)Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-1Then of course she wanted to get in a few 🙂 Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-2These shoes are beyond comfortable!  I have a black pair that I wear when I’m on my feet 8+ hours shooting a wedding.  Ok, I have two black pairs 🙂 Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-3 Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-4It hit me that I don’t do any close ups of Maya’s clothes.  These boots are one of my favorites!  Hers too!  I love that they can be worn up or down… Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-5 Blog Black Orchid Tie Dye Doma Leather Jacket J Crew Sweater-6THEN…I had a shoot later in the day.  I knew I would be too hot in that sweater, so I changed.
